Local doctor faces years behind bars for medical malpractice

A Kentucky doctor has been sentenced to several years in prison, but not before he harmed many of his patients. The doctor, a cardiologist, was accused of fraud and medical malpractice. Several of his former patients presented testimony explaining how the negligence of the doctor ruined their lives forever. 

After some initial investigation, it was determined that the doctor repeatedly lied to his patients, telling them that they needed medical procedures that they did not really need. Investigators suspect the scheme was an attempt to defraud insurance providers into paying money for a service a patient did not actually require. Unfortunately, the patients became the victims in the careless plot. 

Several of the patients were advised by the dishonest cardiologist that they needed immediate surgery to install a pacemaker. Though medical technology is far more advanced than it once was, this is still a risky procedure and should not be done unless it is medically necessary. Several patients now say they suffered side effects and injuries that will affect them for the rest of their lives. 

If a Kentucky patient has been harmed by a careless doctor, he or she may want to contact an attorney that handles medical malpractice cases. An attorney may be able to explain the legal process to a client and help him or her seek any damages or compensation that may be available. There is no need for a victim to suffer in silence, and taking action against a negligent doctor, with the help of an attorney, may prevent others from becoming victims in the future.
